Bring back the quintessential Aussie burgerYou may have noticed that as the years go by, food is changing. The advent of processed food has only been around for roughly 75 years a mere speck of sand in the hourglass of food history....
Chocolate, coconut and banana breadGood old, ubiquitous banana bread. It's on every cafe menu from Toorak to Townsville and like most popular items, you can get some stellar ones and some truly diabolical ones. The price too, isn't...
Authentic fried riceI'm going to attempt to unravel the myth of cooking fried rice for you. Because we all know that the fried rice you get from the local take away can never be recreated at home. Or can it?

- 4 John Dory fillets
- ¼ cup (35g) plain flour, seasoned
- 60g butter
- juice of ½ lemon
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
- steamed potatoes, steamed green beans, to serve
1. Pat fish fillets dry with paper towel and dust with seasoned flour, shaking off any excess.
2. Melt half of butter in a large frying pan on medium heat. When starting to sizzle, add fish fillets and cook for 2 minutes each side, until tender and golden. Remove to warm plates.
3. Add remaining butter and lemon juice to pan, increase heat to high and stir for 1 minute, until well combined. Stir through parsley. Serve fish with steamed potatoes and green beans and spoon over sauce.
Tip: this is a classic fish à la meuniere. Take care not to burn the butter when you're making the sauce cook it just enough so it's golden and tastes nutty.
